as american as apple pie

Look, I love the slow food movement. I am all about taking your time and getting things done right - especially food. But, sometimes you need something quick and easy. In my life, I have the two most adorable and precious little time-sucks, I mean toddlers, that take up most of my energy, focus, and patience. So when we get invited to a BBQ or a family gathering, I am not gonna lie - I try to find a dish to bring that is simple to make. Take this short-cut on apple pie that I recently took to my Dad's house. It is tasty but not time consuming.

You will need the following:
1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
1-2 medium apples, breaburn or honeycrisp are my favorite
1 heaping table spoon of sugar
1 tsp of cinnamon
local honey, for drizzling
flour for dusting

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and prep with non-stick spray. Slice the apples thinly. Place in a large mixing bowl and toss with cinnamon and sugar til well coated. Set aside. Roll of the puff pastry very thin into a rectangle shape. Use flour as needed to keep from sticking to working surface and rolling pin. Place dough on baking sheet. Top with apples in a single layer. Bake for 20 minutes, until crust is golden. Remove and drizzle with honey.



I felt like a housewife from the 1950s that had just been introduced to the wonders of a microwave. Food that's quick and easy - but that my family will gobble up - I'm in! Okay, maybe I'm not ready to go that far away from the slow food movement. But this shortcut on an American classic is sure to become a family tradition.

  2. The pie was delicious although I did change it a bit - I used Granny Smith apples and then some orange juice and walnuts in the apple mix. Great balance of sour/sweet.

  3. For those who may not know about this might find it hard to imagine that international shipment of household goods is a very standard practice by now. We have truly become global citizens. There are statutory provisions in import and export regulations to deal with international relocations. You just need to opt for international relocation while filling out forms or while searching and you will be redirected only to relevant providers.
